Founder, The Nzinga Effect
“If women stories are missing and even more so black women stories are missing and if it is African’s stories, from the continent of Africa and the diaspora, as I said whether you are from Bahia, or Colombia or Afro-Mexicana, all those stories are not very well known and lots of those histories are the same, then we needed a platform that was dedicated to telling our stories, not to each other but to the world.
I keep telling our team that if a 14 year old boy in Adelaide reads one of our stories and shares them, he shares them because of the quality of the storytelling. Because he connects with the humanism of the story and not because the story is about a ‘black african woman’. So this is what The Nzinga Effect exists to do.”
